Spring Tulips


Spring has definitely sprung in Teton Valley!  We hope everyone had a wonderful Easter this past weekend with friends and family.

Now that most of us are transitioned out of skiing and other winter sports, it is time to get moving in the sunshine.  

Running, walking, hiking, cycling, paddling or whatever pursuit gets you active soaking up some natural vitamin D in the great outdoors!

Please check out this months newsletter below for many Spring-inspired happenings, events, and opportunities.

Local Athlete Success Stories
Each newsletter we will share the story of a success story of someone in our community.  We all measure success differently and there are examples around us all the time of people doing some amazing things or just consistently making progress towards their own fitness/lifestyle goals.  

This issue we spotlight Julie Bryan.  She ran for the USA on the Mountain Running Team for 6 consecutive years. Julie has raced both nationally and internationally for the Teva Mountain Running Team.  A non-running injury to her knee caused her to have surgery a while back.  She has been working her way diligently back into top form through her dedication and hard work.  

Recently she added a variety of the Boot Camp and Core/Cardio classes to the mix of her fitness regiment.  She was very impressed at the amount of solid work and attention her core got in class and has been a regular fixture in class ever since.  Watch out for Julie on the mountain trails as the snow clears.  She is coming back stronger than ever! 
We all get knocked down in life sometimes.  The key is to always get back up.  Here is a great video that epitomizes this.  This amazing young lady could have chosen not to get up this time as many in her situation might  not have.

We will fall.  We can rise.
